You're Here To Stay


On my mind.
And in my memories,
When that day you left from me...
You really stayed.

On my mind.
And in my memories,
When you said that you were leaving...
You really stayed.

Your voice nonstop,
Really stayed.
Feelings I've got,
Really stayed.
I've even prayed,
You away.
But...
You're here to stay.

On my mind.
And in my memories,
When you said that you were leaving...
You really stayed.

I can not block,
You away.
I can't unlock,
Your invading...
Memory.

Your voice nonstop,
Really stayed.
Feelings I've got,
Really stayed.
I've even prayed,
You away.
But...
You're here to stay.

On my mind.
And in my memories,
When that day you left from me...
You really stayed.

On my mind...
I can not block,
You away.
I can't unlock,
Your invading...
Memory.
You're here to stay!
